EP49 - The Art and Science of Olive Oil - with Brenda Wilkinson
Im am absolutely fanatical about the quality of the foods that we choose to eat. In many ways this is one of the first rules of healthy eating and olive oil is no exception.
Unfortunately most people don’t understand why it is so important to be really fussy about the olive oil they choose to buy or even what to look for a good quality product. Brenda Wilkinson of Rio Largo chats to us about what you as the consumer need to look for when purchasing a great olive oil. Good quality virgin olive oil is high in protective polyphenols or antioxidants. It is known to be protective against heart disease, dyslipidemia and dementia. I cannot emphasise enough how important is it to shop around, ask questions and look for certification when you are spending money on olive oil.

Dr Perlmutter shares his thoughts and tips on what we can all do to create better health outcomes in the future, starting right now.

EP47 - The Art of Observing Your Own Mind - with Niki Seberini
In March 2020 I interviewed Niki Seberini about her commitment to run the Jerusalem Marathon, having literally hated running her entire life. Inevitably, the marathon was cancelled due to covid. But not one to back down from a challenge, Niki persevered and in true Mind Freedom Fighter style, reframed running as a mindfulness exercise.
It is for this reason whether we are conscious of it or not, that exercise is so useful as part of your stress management strategy. She also goes into the practice of observing your thoughts rather than getting sucked into the vortex of anxiety and stress.
Niki Seberini is a well known talk show host on Chai FM and mindfulness facilitator and you can find out about getting in tough with Niki on the show notes page. I hope you enjoy this chat as much as we did.

EP46 - Optimising Fertility when Nothing Else Works - with Amanda Kouaiky.
This episode of the Re~Invent Health Podcast is for anyone who is, or knows of someone battling with fertility.
Over the years as a nutritionist I have seen dozens of women go though absolute torment at the prospect of not getting pregnant. Sadly too often, some of the most basic biomarkers for a healthy pregnancy are completely disregarded in mainstream treatment. By addressing nutrition, managing stress and supplementing with bio identical progesterone, which are essential to conception and pregnancy seem to fall by the wayside.
In this episode I chat with Amanda Kouaiky who shares the most incredible story of how she and her husband battled to conceive and how they turned this experience into a business that helps couples along their fertility journey with some of the most innovative and simple tools. Please share this story with anyone who you know who may benefit from this information, And please don’t forget to rate and leave a comment.
